They emailed me after I cancelled the free month

They offered the app for $0.99 per month direct from HOMER rather than the $7.99 per month subscription through Apple. Very shady. Not impressed with their lack of integrity and I won’t pay for it even at $0.99 per month.

My kids like the app but it didn’t keep their attention amazingly or show a marked improvement in their literacy skills. Meh.

Rip off

The $8 Learn to read fee sounded like a one-time fee. It’s not! I was charged monthly. It is way too much and misleading. I will never purchase an app from this company again.

Not Free

They trick you into signing up for a monthly service before you can start using the app.
